Pickleball is a sport described as “a combination of ping-pong, tennis, and badminton,” played in schools, parks and recreation centers, camps, and retirement communities mostly in North America. It uses a simplified combination of tennis rules and strategies. Ages 5-85 can play.
The game itself is played on a pickleball court that is the same size as a badminton court (20 feet wide by 44 feet long). The net is set at 36 inches high on the edges and 34 inches in the middle.
Pickleball’s small court allows younger players or those with varying degrees of mobility to participate in a way that the larger court of tennis sometimes prohibits. Additionally, a rule prohibiting volleying (hitting the ball in the air) in the non-volley zone (the space 7 feet from the net) helps to equalize play and reduce overpowering smashes at the net.
